Someone Please Wake Up NASA PAO at Wallops and White Sands

NASA Launching Colorado Solar Experiment February 23

"NASA will launch a University of Colorado experiment to image the sun on a NASA suborbital sounding rocket February 23, from the White Sands Missile Range, N.M. The Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE) will support measurements by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) satellite. ... NASA's Sounding Rocket Program is managed at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia."

Keith's note: If you go to the NASA White Sands website, no mention of this launch is made. And there is nothing at the Missile Range website either. Wallops issued this press release, is listed as managing this launch as part of the NASA Sounding Rocket Program, and the NASA PAO contact listed is at Wallops. However, no mention is made of this launch on the Wallops home page, but there is an item listed under "upcoming launches" -- but it is for a flight on 22 January - a month ago. No mention is made at the Code 810 website listed in the press release. The link to the "schedule" page at Wallops gets you this message: "The Wallops Daily Range Schedule is no longer available for public use. Thank you for your patience as the Wallops Flight Facility Public Affairs Office works to create a public schedule, available on the Wallops home page."
